to move up? >> right now, outside of hoyer, the person most chatter about is chris van hollen, representative from maryland, a democrat, paul ryan's foil on the budget committee in the house. again, a young, sort of take charge, a charismatic leader. he raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles. so he has a lot of pull. complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer are friends and they represent the same state and run in the same circles. he was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker. that seems to be the person who bubbles to the top the most. and a question about what debbie wasserman schultz will do. democratic committee chairman. no one does that job too long. she is looking at a way to leadership. i hate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to know if a successor and get behind somebody, it would be chris van hollen. >> that shakes. drama makes what is going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what is the lay of the land on the senat
chatter in terms of being a successor is chris van hollen who's a representative from maryland, a democrat. he is paul ryan's foil in on the budget committee in the house. again, a very young sort of take charge, charismatic leader, raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles, so he has a lot of pull within the caucus. it's complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer are friends, and they both represent the same state, they've run within the same circles. van hollen was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker, so that seems to be the surface that bubbles to the top as well. debbie wasserman schultz, the democratic committee chairwoman. nobody does that job for too long. she is looking for a way into leadership, but right now i hesitate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to anoint a successor or get behind somebody, it would be van hollen. >> thank you. so that shakespearean drama makes what's going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what's going on
and congressman chris van hollen. ron bonjean for. former aide to house speaker dennis hastert. has grover norquist lost his will? >> speaker boehner said revenues would be on the table as well as spending cuts and entitlement reform but we would not raise tax rates. i have seen nothing different than what these senators have said in the last day or so than what speaker boehner has said. the key here is the devil is in the details. once we see some sort of fine print in the next couple weeks, we'll know, you know, we'll know whether our legislators stand. one interesting thing here. i just want to add, we keep talking about tax reform but we have not really had a big conversation in the media about entitlement reform. medicare is exploding. billions of dollars, and we have millions of people are counting on it, will be retiring. baby boomers are retiring will go larger and larger. yet we have not talked about that yet. while we're talking about grover norquist versus these members i think the devil will be in the details. we'll have to talk about a broader conversation between tax revenue
. maryland congressman chris van hollen. they were on the super committee that failed to reach a deal a year ago. and utah senator mike lee. plus u.n. ambassador susan rice meeting with three of her sharpest critics today on capitol hill to explain her description of the benghazi attack. could this remove the opposition to her possible cabinet nomination? could that be pommes coming as early as this week? and i hear we have a special guest coming. n nascar's danica patrick is going from the racetrack to the virtual world of video games. danica patrick is going to be here. >> i'd like to race in her car. >> yeah, yeah. >> can you pull that off for me? >> i'll see what i can do. i'll put in a good word for you. >> all right, john berman, thanks so much. look forward to watching you. >>> in the northeast, meteorologist alexandra steele is in for rob marciano. it's going to be a quick hit, right? >> that's right. quick hit. john mentioned some virtual play. we had virtual snow in the meteorological world, verg ga, snow that falls into a dry atmosphere so we don't see it. it moistened up the atmo
, chris van hollen, the list goes on and on, and all of the women standing here who traveled into districts. so we were thinking that it was possible, and that was. i would say one disappointment that i had was that message was at stake, was so misrepresented by the republicans that the public was confused. people would say welcome why are the democrats wanting to commit. we worked. democrats use savings of medicare to extend it for another decade, to provide benefits immediately, immediately for seniors right now. republicans took that same money and gave tax cuts to the rich, and that was the message that outside money spent a fortune to misrepresent. and that is why the election of barack obama was so very, very important to protect medicare, even the we could not get the majority. we knew what he wants, that many of the issues, affordable care, medicare, et cetera were protected. so we have a different view of what happened that day. you saw some of the members that we elected, the intellect that we brought in here. so it's not about quantity so much for us as the quality
